Updated – Grass Fire Started by Lightning Hitting Power Line [AUDIO]

UPDATE - Saturday, August 31, 10:30 a.m.

According to a news release from the Missoula City Fire Department, the grass fire Friday night was caused by a lightning strike that struck a Northwest Energy power line. It appears that the lightning struck a cross member near the top of the pole and caught fire, dropping embers to the ground, catching the grass on fire.

The fire is estimated to be about 80 acres in size, and was 100% contained, however, crews will remain on the scene throughout the day to mop up any hot spots.

UPDATE – More Evacuations Ordered in West Mullan Fire Near Superior [AUDIO]

UPDATE - Tuesday, July 16, 8:00 a.m.

Movement by the West Mullan Fire burning not far from Superior has caused more evacuations, according to fire information officer Pat McKelvey.

"There were some more evacuations ordered overnight in the West Mullan Road area," McKelvey said. "The fire burned down the slope towards those homes."

McKelvey said traffic is becoming a problem on I-90.

"Everybody wants to see the fire, see the helicopters working the area, and people are stopping on the side of the road  creating a traffic hazard," McKelvey said. "The Highway Patrol is being very aggressive in keeping people from stopping along the highway, so please don't do that."
Fire Information Officer Pat McKelvey

The fire is still at about 700 acres.
